Whether she's walking the red carpet or sitting front row at a fashion show, Olivia Palermo always looks flawless. Sure, she's naturally gorgeous, but she's also found a (pretty, polished) formula that works. "How you wear your makeup every day is usually how you look your best," says the 29-year-old street-style star and spokesperson for La Mer and Ciaté. "Even on my wedding, I didn't change it up much." Here's how she achieves that signature look. (Hint: It's not just about the products.)

Stick to a beautifying diet.
"Eating healthily goes hand in hand with your skin-care regimen," she says. "I have a lot of fish, sushi, chicken, vegetables, and green tea. I skip coffee — too dehydrating."

"It's so important! Sweating helps you get out all the toxins. I do Bikram yoga and spin classes at FlyBarre."

Never sleep in your makeup.
"No matter who says they have the best makeup remover, by far it's Vaseline. It's an old-school tip from my mother, but it works really well. And it's something everyone has in her medicine cabinet."

Be prepared.
"I always carry extra bobby pins, hair elastics, and double-sided tape with me. A needle and thread too, just in case a clasp breaks."

So what products does the famous fashionista reach for when it comes to her beauty routine? See Palermo's go-to buys below.
